Ive had this 94 E420 sitting around for a while with the intention to swap in a 5.0. Some late winter weather has pushed me to get this project going. I have a 119.970 thats been sitting around for some time as the perfect engine for this. I have seen comments regarding the oil pan and pump having to be swapped but im not too sure why. Unfortunately i never did look to closely at this engine until now and it had water sitting in it, so off to scrap she goes. The .970 seemed to be the most strait forward and easily replaceable block for this and ive sourced another.
I had some questions with the LH module, but gsxr mostly has answered them. Ill be pulling the 5.0 LH for the donor as well as the EZL. Swapping the short 2.24 diff is also on the list. I have been skimming over 2phast's list off diffs and seeing how close to a 2.82 I can get. Might be easier to get a 2.87 or 3.07. I know many of these swaps have been done and just wanted to share mine. Will post up some pictures.
